Sometimes you just gotta love a company’s sensibility.
The management at this theatre in New Zealand doesn’t care what gender you identify as, or it seems, even if you identify as human – just as long as you wash your hands.

The sign was the idea of the theatre director Sarah Anderson. Speaking to the Otago Daily Times the theatre manager said,
“We like people to be relaxed and that’s the point of having the sign,
“It takes any anxiety away for people who might feel pressured into going into toilets specified for one gender, or another, when they don’t necessarily relate to that gender.
“The sign was installed to help people ‘to feel more comfortable and safe”.
